MAINE IN WAR. 



Maine, although a province of Massachusetts until 1820, 
has a history of its own. Maine men have always stood 
shoulder to shoulder with the sons of the old mother 
Commonwealth and they share in the glory of her his- 
tory. Nobly have they borne the responsibilities of their 
times. The early settlers, as civilization demanded, 
bravely contested with the savages the right to occupy 
our rugged soil, and the story of their lives is one of 
heroism. In 1690, nearly all were driven from the prov- 
ince, but their sons and grandsons returned and reoccupied 
the abandoned homesteads. The siege of Louisburg, in 
1745, was suggested by a Maine man, William Vaughan. 
Gen. William Pepperrell, a Maine man, commanded the 
troops, and a considerable portion of the officers and men 
were from the province. Gen. Pepperrell was knighted 
for the wonderful success of that expedition. Sons of 
Maine served bravely during the campaigns of the seven 
years* war, and at the first alarm from Lexington they 
grasped their muskets and marched at once to Cam- 
bridge. At Machias, the gallant men of that little settle- 
ment gave us, on June 12, 1775, "the Lexington of the 
seas." At the siege of Boston, Maine men did valiant 
service in the trenches, and of the soldiers who heroically 
checked the advance of the British army at Hubbardton, 
one-fourth were from the province of Maine. Maine men 
were at Quebec with Arnold, also at Ticonderoga, Long 
Island, Stillwater, Saratoga, the surrender of Burgoyne, 
spent the winter at Valley Forge, were at Monmouth and 
Quaker Hill, and followed the fortunes of the Continental

army until the surrender at Yorktown in 1781, remaining 
m the service until November, 1783. The daring fisher- 
men of our coast served in the Continental navy and were 
with John Paul Jones. They proudly walked the decks of 
our privateers in two wars, and dealt blows that were felt 
by our enemies. 

After the Revolution, many who had served in the 
Continental army, settled in Maine, among them Generals 
Knox, Lincoln, Wadsworth, also Henry Dearborn, Paul D. 
Sarcent, David Cobb and many other officers. 

The descendants of those patriotic ancestors have 
added glory to their fathers. Our gallant Commodore 
Preble is a conspicuous figure in the early history of the 
American navy. In the war of 18 12, although that war 
was unpopular with our people, Maine shirked no 
responsibility. 

In the great Civil War our record is known of all men. 
Maine sent into the field over seventy thousand of her 
sons. It was one of her regiments that returned with the 
largest number of battles recorded on its flag, of any 
regiment in the service, and another of its regiments had 
the greatest loss of any in a single battle. The colors 
which they bore are in the State House at Augusta, 
emblems of the devotion of the men of Maine in main- 
taining the integrity of the Union. 

In a word the men of Maine have fallen in every war 
from King Philip's until the surrender at Appomattox, 
and they lie buried on nearly every battlefield. 

The land is holy where they fought, 

And holy where they fell ; 
For by cheir blood that land was bought. 

The land they loved so well.
